I have been to NYC so many times and have done many of the attractions. But this tour was a whole new experience. The guide was excellent. She was so knowledgeable and fed us with great tidbits of information that we would not have been able to find out without great research. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a rich informative experience.

James Nevius gave us a well planned, informative and very interesting walking tour of Central Park, Greenwich Village, and Lower Downtown. It was a private tour, yet very inexpensive compared to the other private tours. Make sure to pay with cash because he and his wife don't take credit cards. He and his wife wrote a couple of books about NYC, and are working on a third book, and so it seemed like he had more credibility than a lot of other tour guides. Overall, it was a great four hours. We started our vacation with this tour, which I would recommend, because that way we got our bearings and learned how to use the subway right from the start.

A six hour private walking tour was the highlight of our trip, covering many miles we learnt about districts - history and culture, learnt about NY history and picked up lots of tips about restaurants, live music and places to go. Learn from a local who is passionate about their home.

Michelle and James Nevius are the tour guides. They are walking encyclopedias of New York City history and fun facts, Michelle holds two master's degrees from Columbia, and James is a graduate of NYU (as well as an 11th-generation New Yorker). Their walking tours showcase their extensive knowledge.Variety of tours are offered each lasting about 2 hours. Schedule at mutually convenient time. We've done tours of various neighborhoods (Greenwich Village Brooklyn Hts. Central Park etc.) and each has been very informative, interesting and fun . They've also written a book, " Inside the Apple: A Streetwise History of New York City" which can be used for self-guided tours. But the $80.00 fee (flat rate for unto 4 people) for a private tour with Michelle or James is well worth the price.
